Lil Uzi Vert brings back his $24 million diamond implant

The rapper wore the accessory on stage this weekend, despite previously complaining that it caused bleeding

Lil Uzi Vert’s $24 million diamond forehead piercing is back, baby!

On Sunday (July 25), the rapper performed at Miami’s Rolling Loud festival, where he revealed the reimplanted diamond. A closer look at the natural pink diamond can also be seen in a video posted from before his set, where he shows off a new tongue tattoo.

Uzi originally had the 11 carat accessory installed last February. Explaining the purchase on Twitter, he simply stated that he wanted “a lot of M’s in (his) face”.

Later, on IGTV, Uzi noted that he had been saving up for years for the expensive purchase (which was initially meant to be a ring), so he put it on his forehead so he wouldn’t lose it. “So $24 million on a ring is the stupidest idea because I’m gonna look down and that ring ain’t gon’ be there… I know me. I wake up in odd places and different sceneries,” he said.

Last month, however, the rapper was spotted without the implant. While his jeweller claimed the accessory was “safe as any other piercing”, Uzi revealed that it was causing him bleeding and needed to be removed. Perhaps the rapper has found a safer way to wear the implant? If not, beauty is pain… we guess? 

Last week, Lil Uzi teased his latest weird purchase plans on Twitter: exoplanet WASP-127. According to Grimes (yes, Grimes) this would make him “the first person to legally own a planet”. 

In an interview with Business Insider about the purchase, however, director of McGill’s Institute of Air and Space Law, Ram Jakhu, noted that buying a planet violates the 1976 Outer Space Treaty. “There will always be companies trying to sell you things. If they can make money off you, why wouldn’t they? But, that doesn’t mean it’s legally recognised,” he said. 

Either way, Uzi seems to be unfazed, taking name suggestions from fans on Twitter.
